2016 Annual Report

December 31, 2016

This report remains a snapshot of the advances in civil rights the ACLU-NJ achieved in 2016. But it also stands as a testament to how passionately we plan to fight in the future.

This summer, the ACLU noted that the promised policies of a Donald Trump presidency would pose a major constitutional crisis. As that crisis looms closer, the ACLU of New Jersey and the national ACLU are gearing up for the fight of our lives.

New Jersey, long a leader on civil liberties and civil rights, must stand as a bulwark of our freedom. The need for stronger protections at the state level only grows more urgent.
